Sample text

So it is with the martial arts, in the beginning you are learning something new every session and improvement can be as fast as the aforementioned metaphoric spiral. All of a sudden your advancement seems to be slowing down and in some cases you seem, (like the spiral), to be going backward instead of forward, 40 Animal Day but it is only an illusion. After such a quick advance even a slight decrease in speed may seem like a backward spiral, usually it is only the person himself who sees or thinks he sees this supposed decline, everyone around him will be seeing his improvement but him.

Left to its own devices, the mind can be a self-detonating time bomb of negativity that will spiral you down into ever increasing misery. Dealing with the inner opponent is firstly about understanding that everyone has an inner opponent (often there is more than one voice), though very few come to terms with him, and also understanding that we will never reach our full potential whilst he has the run of our heads. Mr Negative is very controllable, if you know how. These are three ways that I have found successful in dealing with Mr Negative: 33 Animal Day 1) Thought rejection Reject the negative thoughts by completely ignoring them, not listening to anything that Mr Negative says, thus leaving him no mental ledge on which to perch.

The one or two techniques that he so favours at each range will be quickly exhausted and the stamina that he has not got will disappear at a rate of knots. Because he is so unused to anyone going the distances and the fact that he is feeling the excruciating pain of oxygen debt (this comes when the stamina goes) he will often panic at this stage and his bottle may start to go. It may take a minute to get him in this state, though, and that minute may be the longest that you ever experience. So try to be honest when evaluating yourself and your system.
